you know that brittany spears song, “oops, i did it again?” Well, think of it when you read the first few lines,

oops, i did it again.
i opened my mouth,
offended a friend…

OK enough of that.

PICTURE IT

i ran (literally, with a shopping cart) into a friend, one whom i’ve not seen in a few months.

“oh my god, drew. hey. i’ve been really worried about you. i’ve been meaning to call you.”

i look at him with a puzzled expression and ask “really?”
but,the voice decided to take it to the next level.

i chuckle and ask why he said that.

AND BEFORE he could answer, i stop him and ask,

“why people (myself included) who have been out of touch, that is the first thing they say?

when in reality, if you are truly concerned…:

 

YOU COULD HAVE

picked up the phone

YOU COULD HAVE

sent me an e-mail

YOU COULD HAVE

gone to any of the BILLION social networking sites of which i am a member and left a message

YOU COULD HAVE

skyped me (it’s always on)

OR YOU COULD HAVE SIMPLY
gotten in your car and driven over?

so, i ask you again, just how concerned were you?

just how concerned am i?

where does the offense part come in? well, his wife just sent me a text saying that he didn’t like being put on the spot.

all i did was ask a question.

so….

oops, i did it again.
i opened my mouth,
offended a friend…

 

but what i’ve learned, i need to make sure i don’t say the same…

🙂

  1. Those remarks by him were his first line of defense, There was no excuse for him not to be able to get in touch with you in this day and age….

    Cheers!
